Named "Best Spa" by American Spa magazine and "Best Spa in America" by Skin Inc., Blue Water Spa provides a full spectrum of procedures and services in all areas of aesthetics, including rejuvenating facials, men's treatments, and makeup consultations. Specialties include pre-natal massage.
We were totally taken in by the "wonderful reviews" for this place and paid out $1000 for two "full leg" laser treatments for my daughter. They told her to shave before the treatment which did not seem right to my daughter and would not let me in the treatment room with her. No wonder they didn't let me in - their laser didn't do a thing other than burn her skin and not give a bit of difference in the amount of hair on her legs. Luckily we had to move from Raleigh or we might have been talked into spending more money on treatments. Not only is their laser totally ineffective, but they only worked on my daughter for less than an hour for both legs. After moving back to a southern Pittsburgh suburb and visiting another laser center in McMurray, PA, we were treated at that facility and came to find out that treating just from the calves down would take at least an hour. Not only that, but we were told that you should never shave before treatment. You need at least 1/4 to 1/2" of hair for the laser to travel down and actually kill the follicle. So everything Blue Water told us was completely wrong and they totally deceived us while taking our money for a procedure they knew wouldn't work. One other thing, our new laser center gave us a consultation with a trial use of the laser to show us what it does, how it works and the results. Blue Water NEVER did that - all they did was take our money. Never go to a facility that doesn't show you results up front - BEFORE taking your money!!!

Best of the Best!!!
My Review of Blue Water Spa:
Upon my arrival at Blue Water Spa, I was immediately greeted by name, with a warm and sincere welcome from the entire staff at the front desk. After only waiting for a few moments, just enough time for me to browse through their fine selection of exotic wellness products, I was escorted back to an immaculate and well appointed treatment room for my gentleman's facial. I was truly pampered and completely relaxed during the entire treatment, every one of my needs were catered to. I was even given some fantastic tips on how to keep my skin looking energized and healthy. Once my treatment was finished, I got up, looked in the mirror, and was amazed at how fantastic my skin looked! This was by far the best facial that I had ever had! I was escorted into the lobby, offered refreshments, and presented with some sample products for my skin. I immediately booked another appointment at Blue Water Spa, because it provided me with the first class service that I am used to. Blue Water Spa has such a warm, relaxed, yet refined ambience, the Blue Water Spa team anticipated and fulfilled all of my needs. I cannot wait until my next visit. I absolutely, unequivocally recommend Blue Water Spa spa to anyone!

I'm a client for life
I've kn ow about blue water spa for several years but I didn't visit until recently. The spa is "on the other side of town" and I just never got around to trying it out. I finally visited when they were running a special on latisse. I went just for longer eyelashes but I was so impressed with the beautiful spa and the warm and knowledgeable staff. While I was there I booked an appointment for a facial. IWhat a surprise to have a facial from my long lost aesthetician Heather. She is great. Some time ago she left a spa in my neighborhood. I was so excited I found her. Even better, her facial was even better than before. She added an incredible massage to my microdermabrasion and it was heavenly. It is worth a drive to visit blue water spa. The people are amazing and the spa itself is gorgeous and absolutely immaculate. I think the products have worked wonders too.

100% every time Best spa treatments ever
I travel for business and I'm lucky enough to visit spas all over the world. I am a sopa lover and make a point of having a spa service anythwere I go. I have never had a facial that compares to the blue water spa facial. I try to get there at least every 2 months, I've been doing it for the past five years and every single facial has been out of this world.
I do really love some of the resort and destination spas I visit and they give great tretaments too but blue water spa, hands down gives the best facial I've ever had. The treatments are consistently good. I've had treatments from several different facialists but they all seem to stick around. If you're ever in Raleigh NC give the signature facial a try. You'll be hooked.

Bluewater is by far my favorite spa in the area. I recently indulged in the facial package; and I did NOT regret it. I would (and do) recommend Bluewater to anyone interested in top notch service with amazing results!

This was my first time ever going to a spa. I was there for microdermabrasion.The staff was very informative and made me feel comfortable. The atmosphere was great and so was the experience.

The staff at Blue Water Spa is what really sets this spa apart from any other I've been to. The treatments are completely customized to my needs.
The other thing I love about Blue Water Spa is their laser center! They would rescheduled my appointment for another time because I'd been in the sun a lot rather than take my money and risk the chance of damaging my skin. They are always so caring. The girls at the laser center were so knowledgeable the girl at the front desk spoke with me at length about surgical procedures I was always interested in but shy to bring up. My results are amazing and I plan on having other areas done soon!

Terrible experience! I booked a laser appointment ( actually a series of 4-6 $500 treatments) and was very clear that I was driving in from out of town. I called exactly at 12:48pm to say that I was leaving town a few minutes late as well as get the address for my gps. I arrived 23 minutes late after calling a second time on route to make sure they knew I was late but still coming. The receptionist never mentioned a problem of any kind. When I arrived, I was told I was too late. The nurse practioner that I was apparently required to see always leaves at 2pm and therefore I could not be seen. Why would they tell me that at 12:48pm? Or 1:55pm? Or for that matter during the phone consult that morning with the nurse practioner herself? Why in the world would you schedule an out of town appointment to come in 15 minutes before a key person walks out the door and NOT inform the client that if they are late the drive will be for nothing? I asked Why didn't you at least call me when I was in route and tell me not to complete the drive? Truthfully, they seemed to not be able to care less. With this kind of apathy why would anyone give these folks your hard earned money? If they care so little about a new client coming in from out of town, how mush would they care when injecting you, lasering you or God forbid preforming a surgery. Yikes! But if you are looking for smarmy, snotty and just plain mean treatment go to there. Otherwise, I suggest you take your hard earned money and time elsewhere.

The World's Best Day Spa Experience
I have been a loyal client of Blue Water Spa for over 5 years. The aestheticians keep my skin looking amazing with a combination of facials, microdermabrasion and peels. I typically get 1 facial per month and massage as often as I can. Tne treatments are always top notch and the therapists are always amazing.
Recently, I celebrated my 40th birtday and my husband treated me to the world's best day spa experience at Blue Water Spa. It was nothing short of spectacular. Every detail was perfect. I don't know what was more satisfying, the complete elimination of stress I felt or the way my skin looked. I swear I looked 5 years younger. I was surprised to see such a change because I take great care of my skin. Maybe the stress relief is what made the change in my skin. Whatever it was I plan to be back.
Thank you dear husband for a wonderful and memorable birthday gift.

Fantastic Spa Experience
What an amazing experience I had at Blue Water Spa. I have been a client there for nearly two years getting facials, massage and microdermabrasion. I enjoyed every visit and felt like the staff has been consistently exceptional. I have never treated myself to a big spa package until recently. Some friends gave me a fantastic spa finder gift certificate. I elected to use it at Blue Water Spa and I had a treatment called the ultimate facial plus foot fantasy. I called the spa and they helped me choose a spa package. It really was phenomenal. As beautiful as my skin looks after a Blue Water facial, this was even better. I just can't recommend this treatment enough. The nuice thing is the spa really has something for almost evry budget. For me, this is not a treatment I can afford every month, but it will be on my list for my birthday and Christmas every year. If there is anyone reading this who has never been to a spa trust me, the right spa experience can make a person feel so much stress releif and feel so pampered and really special. A really exceptional spa experience will do all of that and make your skin look great, make you look younger and really make you feel great about yourself.

Extraordinary Facial Treatments
Everyone who knows me know I love spas. So, I often am lucky enough to receive spa finder gift certiifcates. I moved to Raleigh last year from San Diego and heard great things about Blue Water Spa, so I thought I'd give the spa a try. I immediately knew I found my new spa home. The environment is gorgepous, the staff very warm and caring and the facialists are absolutely amazing. They give the most relaxing and decadent facial I've ever had, and my skin has never looked better. The results are immediate and the results last. I think the products are also exceptional. I highly recommend Blue Water Spa for spa junkies like myself and also those new to spas.

I recently experienced by first visit to Blue Water Spa. I recently moved to the Raleigh North Carolina area and I missed my favorite spa from New York. I think Blue Water Spa is even better. My experience was just heavenly. My esthetician was superb and the massage was outstanding. I will definitely be back. I highly recommend Blue Water Spa.

Incredible Spa Experience In Raleigh, NC
My husband surprised me with a Spa Finder gift certificate for my birthday. I chose to schedule a treatment at Blue Water Spa in Raleigh with the certificate. The experience was truly exceptional and something I will always remember. The spa is just beautiful. Everything about the environment is first class. The treatments were just incredible. The experience started with a massage. My massage therapist was tiny but I asked for deep pressure and she delivered. She asked me about my preferences for everything from temprature, to pressure and even a selection of massage product based on the scent. Then, I had a facial treatment. I think it was called the incredible facial or the ultimate facial. It was the most heavenly experience I've ever had. So relaxing, but the best part was the change in my skin. I noticed an immediate change, I think it was better than Botox! My friends and family that didn't even know I had a spa visit commented on the change in my skin.
There was no pressure to purchase products. I was provided with samples of several products with instructions on how to use the. I did purchase the cleanser and a candle.
I highly recommend Blue Water Spa as a great place for relaxation and improvements in your skin. After my experience, my husband I have decided to buy Spa Finder gift certificates for all of our employee Christmas gifts. I will suggest that they use them at Blue Water Spa.
